Default Legget's Interferance

Ok, Saturday, Top of the 9th, runners on 2 and 3. Blooper hit 2nd baseman goofs catch and tries to throw out second guy scoring. Player slides under tag called safe. Catcher is arguing with ump and Legget storms field. Meanwhile base runner keeps advancing seeing catcher with ball and back to field. Legget TELLS CATCHER TO TURN AROUND AND THROW BALL!!! Our guy is thrown out at 3rd for final out and the mouthing starts. All the jaw jacking covered up Legget's actions. If not for us being up by 8 runs what should have happened?

Also of concern was the bad DJ Swearinger impersonation the 3rd baseman did afterwards. No style points for him.

Default Re: Legget's Interferance

I would think deadball as soon as Jackleg steps on field of play, so either runner gets 3rd if more than half way there at that point or send him back to 2nd if not. Under no circumstance can I see him being out on the play.

Men on either 1B and 2B or 2B and 3B. Leggett called for interference on play.

As you note, with us being up by 8 runs, and the tempers flaring as they were, I honestly believe the coaches and umpires made the right decision by just ending the top half and moving onto the bottom. I truly believe if they'd followed the rules to the letter of the law, Caldwell would have taken one to the head on the very next pitch and all Hades would have broken loose (on the field and in the stands).

Honestly, it would have been incredibly bad form for Chad to push for the interference call being up by 8 runs.

This.

It's dead ball or play stops when a coach comes on to the field. Play should have stopped there and the players who advanced or out go back/ No out.

If they would have called the play dead when they should have, the incident at third would have never happened.

Did the Coaches and Umps agree on ending the inning the way it ended?

Yes Sir. It's on the umps and Jack Leg.

Not the first time he's pulled some crap like this. I hope Ray does what he has to do and submit a formal complaint about it. Let's face it, our team handled the situation as good as you can hope for. It doesn't take away from the fact that their coach and players were completely out of order.

Completely different, that what DJ Swearinger did. That was just a "Look-at-me, look-how-hard-I-am," moment. He wasn't trying to pick a fight.

Default Re: Legget's Interferance

Listened to Coach Holbrook at lunchtime on 107.5. He said it is the umpire's discretion whether or not to stop play when a coach comes on the field to protest. We were up 10-2 and he said it wasn't worth arguing the play at 3rd at that point. Better to move on. He complimented the umpire staff for overall a well-called weekend and keeping the 3rd base incident from escalating.

Cocks have class- what can we say? And we OWN Clemson who has none!!!

And you know if we had been safe at third then Jackleg would have argued that the play should have been dead and to send our runners back.

Kind of like protesting the call when you're down by so much.

But that's one of the differences between us and them I suppose! :)

Default Re: Legget's Interferance

Technically it would all depend (umpires discretion) on where Mooney was
at the time Leggett stepped onto the field. ..... Play would have been
dead at that point, BUT ..... if Mooney was more than half way between
2nd and 3rd base, he would have been given third + advance to the
next base (which would have been home, and a score). ..... If he was
halfway or less, then Mooney goes back to 2nd base. Leggett would have been
tossed from the game.

At least that's the interpertation of the dead ball rule several years ago.
If it's changed since the mid / late 90s, I'm unaware of the change.

Default Re: Legget's Interferance

how would you feel is Clemson scored nine in the bottom of the inning? I realize that this notion is far-fetched but the truth is that there is a rule in place for this type of situation and it was arbitrarily not enforced. I understand Holbrook not pressing the issue (I don't blame him) but IMO, it should have been called dead the second Leggett stepped on the field (objective application of the rule). I was glad to see the umpires regain control of an otherwise volatile situation....I also can't believe that Clemson's third baseman (Baum?) was not ejected from the game. I know that Leggett said it was 50-50 but after seeing the photo, it was entirely their fault. If they don't like USC running up the score, maybe they should get better pitchers and fielders, no?

If they'd scored 9 in the bottom...that's baseball, and we have no one to blame but ourselves for blowing a 8 run lead.

I was there. They did the right thing.
